Whole Wheat Carrot Cake

Healthy Tea Cake

Craving for a cake, but worried about all the calorie intake from butter and sugar and egg yolks.
Well, worry no more…
The recipe I am going to share today is so healthy that you can have it without having any guilt of cheating on your diet.
This cake is filled with goodness of carrot, sweetness of jaggery and has a tinge of cinnamon spice to it.
Ingredients
Whole Wheat Flour : 1 Cup
Carrot (grated) : 1 Cup
Jaggery Powder/ Shakkar : 3/4 Cup
Baking Soda : 1 tsp
Baking Powder : 1 tsp
Cinnamon Powder : 1 tsp
Olive Oil : 1/4 Cup
Milk : 1 Cup
Vanilla Essence : 1 tsp
Method
• In a bowl, sieve Whole Wheat Flour, Baking Powder, Baking Soda and Cinnamon Powder.
• In another bowl, add jaggery powder/shakkar, add oil and vanilla essence to it. Whisk it, till jaggery combines well.
• Add dry ingredients to it, and finally add milk to form a batter.
• Add a tbsp of whole wheat flour to grated carrots and mix it.
Add flour dusted carrots to cake batter and mix well.
• Mix the batter using a whisker till everything combines well. Do not over beat it.
• Pour the batter in greased and dusted cake tin.
• Bake it at 180 degrees for 35 minutes.
Check it with a toothpick after 30 minutes, if it comes out clean, let it cook for another 5 minutes or else increase the time.

Serving Tip
In a bowl, add 1/2 cup icing sugar, add milk to it, to form a flowing consistency paste.
When cake cools down, pour, sugar glaze over it.
This would add up to the beauty of Carrot Cake.
Hope you enjoyed the recipe!
